With the recent introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, the criminal liability of companies has entered a new era. The second edition of this practical guide to corporate criminal liability updates its coverage in light of the new act and other recent developments.

It deals with all offences where corporations can have a criminal liability, from Companies Act offences and those under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 to fraudulent trading and corruption, as well as corporate manslaughter. It reviews the legal background, considers who is responsible, discusses specific offences, and examines the implications of recent case law.

  • Provides practical treatment of the major offences affecting companies
  • Gathers together a wide range of material, enabling immediate reference on procedure, evidence and law in a single source
  • Examines the liability of company directors
  • Analyses the implications of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007
  • Explains the "relevant duty of care" created by the 2007 Act
